When the property is set to SelectionStyles.SelectionRenderer, the selection is drawn using a semitransparent brush (whose settings are alpha=100, and RGB=SystemColors.Highlight). If you set the property to SelectionStyles.Both, the selection is drawn using the semitransparent brush and the colors specified by the SelectionBackColor and SelectionForeColor properties. If you set this property to SelectionStyles.SelectionColors, the selection is drawn using the colors specified by the SelectionBackColor and SelectionForeColor properties.
